Hi I'm Jared Baumgarten

I was born in Georgia and have moved around all my life. I love it and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student in high school and I enjoy many things. The most prominent are reading, gaming, and programming. I often wonder about how other people view me and if I'm doing everything that I can to be the person I want to be.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for several reasons. Initially it is because I was born into a Mormon family. I have recently had to opportunity to search for the truth myself and I have found that I feel the best when doing any church activity and I can feel the spirit when I follow the gospel teachings. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the truest church there will every be and I wish so much that others could see this too.

How I live my faith

I go out with the missionaries as often as I am able. As a priest in a bilingual ward I am responsible for saying the sacrament prayer in German for our German members. I try to serve to the fullest of my capabilities in whatever capacity is needed.
